What is the purpose of [updateservices] firewall service?
I found firewall service [updateservices] in couple of PMCs.
What is this, and what should it be used for? Does this exist by default, or has someone added it manually?
Was building a new firewall profile, and while testing, I noticed that I could reach scopes that was not white listed. Found out, that [updateservices] allows me to connect for example our limited access web servers in port 8080.
That service is designed to allow the client to fetch Updates from PMS/F-Secure, even if it is switched into etwork quarantine, which can be enabled from Internet Shield/Network Quarantine (advanced view).
Network Quarantine happens after xx days old updates. It blocks all inbound and outbound traffic except communication with PMS/Update services.1 1Like
